Our Environmental Priority

At 1-800-JUNKPRO®, we see first-hand the magnitude of the solid waste challenges facing our country. In fact, because we rely on landfills and other solid waste disposal options as a vital part of our business, we are compelled to stay current with both local and national solid waste issues.

Consider the following statistics concerning solid waste management in the United States

The U.S. is the #1 trash-producing country in the world. We generate over 250 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) annually. That's 4.4 pounds per person, per day, or 1,606 pounds per person, per year. This means that 5% of the world's people generate 40% of the world's waste.

As economic and population growth in the U.S. continues, so does the daily and annual solid waste that enters the waste management system.

As we demand more disposable, low quality, and single-use products, solid waste per citizen increases proportionately.

Even with concerted efforts to increase recycling, national averages account for only slightly over one pound per day, per citizen.

That said, Junk & Trash Removal Companies have a unique opportunity to impact how we manage solid waste in the U.S. Even so, it is concerning how few companies make an effort to affect the issue positively - largely caused by simply putting profit and labor costs ahead of making an environmentally responsible contribution to the solid waste issue.

We Can Make a Difference!

1-800-JUNKPRO® understands the importance of the environmental, financial, and social impacts that mismanagement of solid waste disposal can impose. Over 60% of the items our Junk Removal teams remove, get recycled and donated. And we are always looking for ways to improve that percentage. All items we are unable to recycle or donate, are disposed of responsibly.

THE AVERAGE 1-800-JUNKPRO JUNK TRUCK PICKS UP 37,800 POUNDS OF JUNK PER WEEK, AND RECYCLES OVER 23,000 POUNDS OF THAT. THIS MEANS THAT EACH OF OUR JUNK TRUCKS DIVERT MORE THAN 1.1 MILLION POUNDS AWAY FROM OUR LANDFILLS EVERY YEAR.
